Screening is the first operation at any wastewater treatment plant. The screening process involves the removal of large non-biodegradable solids that frequently enter a wastewater works, such as rags, papers, plastics, latex, tins, containers and wood.
Efficient solids removal protects the downstream plant and prevents any possible damage, unnecessary wear tear, pipe blockages and the accumulation of unwanted material that will interfere with the required wastewater treatment processes.
The following fine screening solutions are available:
- BANDGUARDTM high efficiency band screens used in sewage treatment plants around the world.
- FINEGUARDTM is utilised for fine screening and removes floating and submerged debris. It is commonly installed in inlet works downstream from coarse screen or bar screens and prevents clogging and damages from components downstream.
- SPIROGUARD®Compact Cleaner (CC) Screen is designed as a stand-alone unit for pumped flow applications. SPIROGUARD® Channel Screen (CS) Screens can be installed for a variety of flow rates and upstream and downstream water levels. The angle of inclination can be adjusted depending on your concrete channel specifications.
- STEPGUARD®is a stair screen for in-channel or tank mounting, that separates out over-size solids and automatically conveys out captured screenings, cleaning itself in the process.
- DRUMGUARD® includes a cylindrical filtering body rotating around its own axle. The machine can be placed either in a channel or in a stainless steel tank. The perforated drum rotates around its axle and conveys screenings to a hopper placed in the centre of the drum. Spray nozzles wash the filter and a conveyor transports the screenings towards the next treatment stages.
